We met here for what we thought was a quick bite with a conference sponsor, but were wrong.
First the place was packed & we had 3 too many people for the booth, but the staff figured out a way and their tip didn’t hurt.
Personally I am not a seafood fan, but the table was, so out came the $150 seafood TOWER appetizer along with a wide selection of other non-seafood items.
By the time dinner came I asked for a simple pasta dish but the couple of diners who ordered the veal parmigiana were amazed.
I was “forced” to order the chocolate desert, and it was the highlight.

Not inexpensive, but great place.

I went with a group of 4 friends and we loved it! Must try the beef carpaccio, our server also made excellent suggestions and made it a fun experience. The food came out pretty quick which was the perfect speed for our group. The Giuliana Prosecco is a great buy!

I was anxious to try RPM while in Chicago, but ran out of time so I was happy to try it in DC. I ordered the mama depandi pasta and roasted cauliflower. Both were delicious! The portions were sized right - not too much. The prices were decent too. I would come here again!
